Ash: Classic overtures

After Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Devdas and Rituparno Ghosh's Choker Bali, Satish Kaushik too is keen to make a period drama.[Continued...]
...He is making a film based on Gujrati novel Saraswatichandra. Satish Kaushik admits, "Yes I'm keen to remake Saraswatichandra and am currently reading the novel." Satish added, "I had spoken to Ash about it during the making of Hamara Dil Aap Ke Paas Hain and she had said that she liked the subject." Saraswatichandra is a love story between two lovers who though in love cannot consummate their relationship because of untoward circumstances. Ekta Kapoor is to produce the film that is likely to have Tusshar Kapoor in the lead playing the role that was done by Manish in the original. Aishwarya Rai will do Nutan's role in the film.
